Clouds Big With Blessing

By Dr. P.W. Philpott

Former Senior Pastor of The Moody Church, Rev. P.W. Philpot’s sermon preached on Sunday morning, January 23, 1949.

When I think of all these young people that were little wee ones when I held some of them in my arms, and I kissed all the girls too that I carried in my arms; Yes, there are some that are married and then we see their children here, and then some of the young fellows at that time are now without any hair and those who have, have got pretty white hair, I begin to think I am getting old myself. …

Echoes Of The Resurrection

By Dr. S. Franklin Logsdon

“He is not here, but is risen.”—Luke 24:6

Nowhere do the rays of divine light shine with greater reflective glory than upon the resurrection message. It is inimitable, incontrovertible, incomparable and absolutely indispensable to the faith “once delivered to the saints.” It healed a baffled guard, hallowed a borrowed grave and heralded a blessed gospel of grace.

No greater proof of the immutability of God’s eternal purpose is obtainable than that which inheres in the fact of Christ’s resurrection. The skeptic denies it, the agnostic ignores it, the atheist rejects it—yet it stands as the basic factor of our faith, …

The Dangers Of Compromise

By H.A. Hermansen

Messaged preached on Sunday morning, July 17, 1949 by The Moody Church’s Associate Pastor, H.A Hermansen.

I want to consider with you an Old Testament story that comprises four chapters of the book of Second Chronicles; and for a  text I would like to read just the first eight verses of the nineteenth chapter.

“And Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned to his house in peace to Jerusalem.

And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to the king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the Lord? therefore …

The Divine Logic Of Foreign Missions

By Rev. F.C.H. Dreyer

By Rev. F.C.H. Dreyer, Retired Moody Church Missionary

Worldwide Christian missions are not founded on emotion, altruism, or expediency, but upon the transcendent love and the eternal purpose of God. Those who deny the lordship of Christ and reject the authority of the Scriptures have no urge to carry the Gospel to other parts of the world. They may look on missions as pious, well-intentioned undertakings, which afford outlets for philanthropic instincts in social service but otherwise they will see little foreign missionary work to interest realistic men and women of today. But those who accept the authority of the …

Are There Few That Be Saved?

By Carl Armerding, D.D.

Message by Carl Armerding, D.D. Associate Professor of Bible and Theology, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois.

For our meditation this evening let us turn again to Luke’s Gospel, chapter 13, commencing at verse 22. “And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut …

1949-06 Atonement.jpg


By A.C. Dixon, D.D.

We also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received atonement.”—Romans 5:11

The word “Atonement” occurs about eighty times in the Old Testament and only this once in the New. But the fact of atonement is everywhere in both Testaments, beginning with Abel’s bloody sacrifice and ending with “The Lamb as it had been slain in the midst of the throne.”

A friend said to John Newton, “I cannot see the doctrine of the atonement in the Scriptures.” Mr. Newton replied, “I tried to light my candle the other evening with the extinguisher …

The Christian's Best Dress

By Rev. Roy L. Laurin, D.D.

Sermon preached Sunday morning, April 24, 1948 by Rev. Roy L. Laurin, D.D., Executive Vice-President of the Fuller Evangelistic Foundation, Pasadena, California.

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.”—Colossians 3:12-14

The process of approximating our daily condition of life to our heavenly position of grace has included putting …

The Divine Blueprints Of Man's Redemption

By Dr. S. Franklin Logsdon

An address by the Rev. S. Franklin Logsdon given at The Moody Church, Sunday evening, January 9, 1949.*

Shall we turn in our Father’s Word tonight to the 85th Psalm and we shall begin reading with verse 7.

“Shew us Thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us Thy salvation. I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for He will speak peace unto His people, and to His saints: but let them not turn again to folly. Surely His salvation is nigh them that fear Him; that glory may dwell in our land. Mercy and truth are met together; …

To Obey is Better than Sacrifice

By Rev. Vance Havner, D.D.

Message given at The Moody Church by Rev. Vance Havner, D.D. of Greensboro, N.C.

Turn to the 15th chapter of 1 Samuel and I want to read about King Saul and a very tragic chapter in his life.

“Samuel also said unto Saul, The Lord sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. …

Five Great Immovable Pillars

By Rev. Howard F. Sugden, D.D.

Rev. Howard F. Sugden, D.D., Pastor of Ganson Street Baptist Church, Jackson, Michigan

“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”—2 Timothy 1:12

An Imperial Saviour

I checked down in the margin of my Bible that this great Apostle had placed his confidence and trust in an Imperial Saviour. Now, I use the word ‘imperial’ because it suggests the sovereignty of my wonderful Lord, and I notice that …
